I have less than a week to come up with a fabulous Thanksgiving tablescape and decor. I just reposted what I did last year, hoping to inspire someone out there in blogland, but also hoping to inspire myself. Just yesterday I was telling my friend Betsy that I needed Creative Defibrillator paddles to shock me into […]
I refuse to decorate for Christmas prior to December 1st and I usually have a small fortune invested in real pumpkins each fall season (so I don’t want to just toss them…yet.) Here’s an easy way to take your fall pumpkins into winter. Create frosty winter pumpkins while you wait for December.
Do you have a Dutch Oven? Ever cook with one? Me neither. But Handsome Hubby has one, and he has cooked several delicious dishes in it. We usually take it camping with us and he made us an amazing apple pie in it one year. It was so good! The Food Network has great Dutch […]

OK, jack-o-lanterns should all be gone by now, but any whole pumpkins you have laying around can carry you through Thanksgiving and into the first couple of days in December. You can make these shimmery metallic pumpkins by breaking the spray painting rules.
I usually hate my mantel, but for Halloween I was pretty happy with it. I really liked all of the elements and the balance the large Raven artwork helped to create for the champagne bucket full of black sticks. Obviously I can’t leave the Raven up there, so I will need to find something else […]
I haven’t been too quiet about how much I dislike my mantel. It’s a challenge… all asymmetrical and weird and I am never sure what to do with it. I got a lot of suggestions to just put something giant up there to create more of a focal point. I think I found it. I went […]
Fun inspiration for fall and Halloween decor using pumpkins, both real and fake.
I love entertaining. I feel like a grown up now that we host Thanksgiving each year. I love any excuse to make new centerpieces or to try a new recipe.
